    The Classics Spin!

    Classics Club

    There is a new challenge at the Classics Club where you pick twenty books, then a random number will be selected and each of us must read the number listed at X number by April 1st 2013.

    Of course, the book selection must challenge you. My challenge is that I own almost every one of these books so I must read them to clear my TBR shelf. I have been having problems controlling the propagation of my book shelves. I need to read more books before I buy more.

    I’ll update this post next Monday to announce which book I will read.

    1. The Warden by Anthony Trollope
    2. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
